Still Thinking Sola Scriptura?

Still thinking Sola Scriptura (Bible Alone)? The few words extracted below from the Catechism should be sufficient to refute the idea once and for all; it should be exceedingly clear by now that theologically Catholicism operates on a plane loftier, more profound, and more faithful to scriptural teaching than what Protestantism has chosen to operate on.

The Christian faith is not a “religion of the book”, but the religion of the “Word”; not a word written and mute, but the Word incarnate and living (cf. CCC 108).

Now let’s turn our thoughts to the Gospel of John, which begins with a big bang that resounds through all ages:

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came to be through him, and without him nothing came to be… And the Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us…(John 1:1-3, 14).

Shall we say more?
